Patrick Phiri focusing on Forest’s survival


Coach Patrick Phiri has repeated that his target was to help Forest Rangers survive relegation in the 2016 Super Division campaign.

Phiri, who has managed to turn around the fortunes of the club he joined earlier in May, he is upbeat about attaining his modest benchmark.

He inherited a club that had collected a paltry 5 points from seven matches but now they have amassed 18 points from 14 matches.

“We are trying our level best to beat relegation as I said,” Phiri said.

“Once we survive relegation we can now look at other bonuses that we can have.

Forest are coming from a famous 1-0 win over Zanaco on Sunday.

“We are very happy that at least we are moving up the table. It is important that we keep on winning as we try to survive,” Phiri said.

Forest are now preparing to face Lusaka Dynamos in the away Week 15 match in the capital city on Saturday.
